He also gave updates on the movie’s progress. He is “deep” in the visual effects work and that there will be a tease coming before the upcoming DC Fan Dome event.
Most importantly, Zack Snyder indicated that the studios will be hands-off in the filmmaking process. Many fans believed that after the muted reception of Batman V Superman, the studio execs leaned on Snyder to “lighten the tone” of Justice League. However, Snyder’s comments seem to indicate that will not be the case for the new version of the movie.
